Top 5 Wednesday : Books You DNF

I DNF a lot of things. There is only so much time in the day and I can’t read everything over the course of my life that I want to, so I decided I just don’t have to read something that I’m not enjoying. Most times I give books a 100 page rule, and if it fails it then I DNF it and get rid of it. There have been a few books I’ve DNF’d and will probably go back to because I’m not in the mood for it, but that doesn’t happen often.

Winter5) Winter (Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marrisa Meyer
I was simply not in the mood for this. I got 350 pages into this one and I was getting so bored that I couldn’t even begin to pick it up. I have to be very in the mood for these because they are so light and fluffy and convenient. Everything is a little too predictable so if I’m trying to read to be challenged these books aren’t quite what I’m looking for. So when I picked up Winter I was not in the mood for it. I’ll go back to it at some point, I promise.

 

4) Loosing it by Cora CarmackLoosing it
I do not gel with New Adult. I enjoy Romance, but New Adult. I feel like the characters
are too young and a lot of times act way, way to naive or childish or immature. I just… uggghh. I didn’t enjoy this. Not at all.
Also that cover is really icky to me. The guy looks like he’s maybe 16? And I am just not into the super young looking dudes and the overly sexual girl? Just lots of no thank yous from me.

 
wallbanger3) Wallbanger by Alice Clayton
Just take everything from the above comment and paste it here. All of it. The same. The main character was either trying to hard or was too immature, I couldn’t exactly put my finger on it. It was a big no thank from me again.

 

 

2) Sweet Evil by Wendysweetevil Higgins
I think there is a theme here. This one is a little younger, I think this one was classed as
YA, and I don’t remember exactly what made me just give up but this one again was just not for me. Maybe it was the too obvious troupe-ness of it? I’m not sure, I was disappointed because I had heard a lot of hype on this one.

 

1) Blood and Salt by Kim LeggittBloodSalt
 This was just predictable to me. That was it. It didn’t bother me much I was just not in a YA mood. Sometimes I’m not bothered by being able to figure out the plot of things early but sometimes it’s just tiring and I’m not into it. This was one of those times. It had a cool premise and everyone loves a good cult story right?
